Awesome job! I have said that losing weight and eating well helps in many ways. I lost slightly over 30 lbs and I know I sleep better and feel better. My blood numbers improved dramatically.

It seems getting off of the psych meds increases the enjoyment of life, I know it did for me. These 'doctors' put you on these meds and want to keep you on them forever. Maybe they were needed at one time but it shouldn't be a life sentence.

Wow, you have come a very long ways in your journey. Outstanding and may you continue to better yourself.

It is a tough fight for sure but will make us all mentally stronger. It saddens me that others have to struggle through this and that it isn't an easy thing to fight through. It sucks because I cannot remember the actual suffering anymore because my life now is so much better. And that is hopefully where all of you will end up, having this a thing in the past.  :smitten:

Laying on the floor wondering how the hell im going to get off this last 3mg of Valium when I feel so bad. Worrying that this is just my baseline and I will never not need the meds to feel calm.
Iíve been at this taper thing for what feels like an inhumanely long time.

I keep digging deeper, but I am so tired of this damn fight.
I used to do triathlons, now Iím underweight and weak.

Itís so hard to imagine ever being done with this.
Thank you for coming back to share.

 That sucks to hear; I was exactly going through the same thing. I relapsed two times with Clonazepam. I got to about half a mg and then had a massive panic attack that caused the "doctors" to reinstate a higher dosage. Eventually, I just bit the bullet and tried a third time, and I survived the taper using Professor C Heather Ashton's guide. And, you will too, and then you will begin the next battle of recovering, which is a far better battle to have, but you will be filled with doubt about recovery like many of you and myself. Just keep trying, follow what Heather Ashton recommends and do things you know will be healthy for your body. The body is durable and will recover; you need to give it time.

thank you for posting this.  it gives me hope that i can get back to where i was before.

i'm through the worst of it hopefully but it gets old to be this far out (almost 2 years) and not be 100% better yet.

you've accomplished alot.  im not sure how we even survive this let alone thrive after getting through.  you should be very proud of yourself.  thanks for thinking of others to post this.
